This year the library was able to purchase thirty five titles with the $450.17 donated funds. The Adopt a Book program was created to help the library and honor the weekly speaker. The 2017 United Fund of Iowa County donated $850.00 for the children's department. Materials purchased included: items to encourage creative scientific play and learning, twenty four print titles to support the Build a Better World summer programs and sixteen print titles to enrich the bilingual collection and programming.

U.S. Public Libraries Weather the Storm Public libraries continue to transform lives by providing critical services and innovative solutions to technology access, in spite of years' worth of cumulative budget cuts. Libraries are part of the solution for those in search of the digital connection and skills required by today's competitive global marketplace. However, unless strategic investments in U.S. public libraries are broadened and secured, libraries will not be able to continue to provide the innovative and critical services their communities need and demand.
